On 9/8, I was invited to my cousin's wedding. There were 2 parts. First part, the akad nikah on 8 AM in the morning. Second part, the wedding reception on 7 PM, exactly 11 hours later.
It took me long preparation for this occasion. Why? I always have short hair, so for this occasion I want to make a hair bun. So for 2 months I tried to make my hair longer. The result, good. My hair got longer and possible to made it into hair bun.
For day look, I made spontaneous decision going with blue color. Well since the ceremony was in the morning, so I thought I will go with bright color
For night look, a bit sentimental journey for me. Started 3 years ago, when my Mum first came back, she brought Indian saree for me. At first, I didn't know the right model because the color and patterns really difficult for me to found the match.
After long search, finally I found the model. I consulted with my trusted tailor and she finished it just in time. No time to do fitting, but it turns out well.
I'm totally happy with my look. I didn't realized that I can made this style. The key is CONFIDENT to explore new style and search references all over the place (magazine, internet). Most of all, know what you want to wear.
It's been a month since Mum passed away. Still hard sometimes. Me and my brother continue our lives, knowing that now Mum will watch over us from above.
On August 3, we went to cemetary. Short visit, just sent prayers for her. Looking at her tombstone, still can't believe that she's gone. Lots of commentsmade by friends and neighbors, how young she was.
Yes she still 49 years old. Her passing reminds me, and all of us, that when the time comes human can't avoid the touch of destiny from God.
We always miss you, Mum. With all our heart...
Just an ordinary girl that living the extraordinary life with her extraordinary family and friends
